Volunteer Orientation
Make a difference

All volunteers are required to fill out an application prior to attending orientation. Please be sure you have completed the form on our application page.

For the safety of our animals and volunteers, we ask that all our individual volunteers go through an orientation before volunteering (group volunteers do not have to complete orientation).

All orientations will be held at 11AM, and should be completed by 12:30 PM.

Orientation classes are held in the annex, which is the small white building to the left of the shelter.

New volunteers will have the opportunity to purchase a GHHS shirt ($10, S – 3XL sizes available). We ask that all volunteers wear a GHHS shirt so the public can easily identify them.

Dog Walking Training

Further training is needed before volunteers can handle the large dogs. After completing orientation, you must complete a dog training class provided by a GHHS staff member. Training sessions last approximately 1 hour. Dog Training Class size is limited to six, so please reserve your spot by clicking here If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact Vickie Young at volunteer@ghhs.org or call 256-881-8081 x217.
